Puerto Vallarta vs. Nuevo Vallarta?

Jump to last reply

My father gifted us a week from his timeshare and my husband and I were thinking about going to Puerto Vallarta this Jan or Feb. We are kind of DIY adventurers when we travel, we like to explore on our own and try to get a good feel for the culture. We love to be active and rarely spend much time sitting on the beach. I was hoping that Puerto Vallarta would be a good place for this type of vacation.

My question is…we have hotel options in both Puerto Vallarta and Nuevo Vallarta. I understand that they are about 20 minutes apart but what is the difference between staying in one vs. the other? I don’t mid having to rent a car, but I’m sure public transportation would be cheaper, right?

Our hotel options would be:
In PV- Mayan Palace, Raintree Club Regina,
In NV- Mayan Palace Nuevo Vallarta, Mayan Sea Garden, Grand Mayan

I would love to get some advice before I start planning!
